Amendment to Revolving Credit Agreement
On March 25, 2022, Steven Madden, Ltd. (the “Company”) and certain subsidiaries of the Company acting as guarantors (the “Guarantors”) entered into a First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) that amended the Company’s Credit Agreement, dated as of July 22, 2020, among the Company, the Guarantors, the financial institutions listed therein, and Citizens Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Agent”) (the “Existing Agreement” and as amended by the Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”).
The Amendment amended the Existing Agreement to replace the London Interbank Offering Rate (“LIBOR”) with the Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index (“BSBY”) as the interest rate benchmark. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement now generally bear interest at a variable rate equal to a specified margin, which is based upon the average availability under the revolving credit facility from time to time, plus, at the Company’s election (i) BSBY for the applicable interest period or (ii) the base rate (which is the highest of (a) the prime rate announced by the Agent, (b) the sum of the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, and (c) the sum of the one-month BSBY rate plus 1.00%). Furthermore, the Amendment reduced the specified margin used to determine the interest rate under the Credit Agreement by 75 basis points, from a preexisting range of (1) in the case of base rate borrowings, 100 to 150 basis points to a current range of 25 to 75 basis points and (2) in the case of BSBY borrowings, 200 to 250 basis points to a current range of 125 to 175 basis points. The Amendment also reduced the commitment fee paid by the Company to the Agent, for the account of each lender, from 0.40% to 0.25% per annum on the average daily unused amount of the lending commitment of such lender. Additionally, the Amendment reduced the frequency of the Company’s borrowing base reporting requirements when no loans are outstanding.
As of March 25, 2022, after giving effect to the Amendment, the Credit Agreement provides for a $150 million revolving credit facility scheduled to mature on March 20, 2027, and no loans or letters of credit were outstanding under the Credit Agreement.
The foregoing summary of the Amendment and the Credit Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to (1) the Existing Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.01 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 28, 2020, and (2) the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, each of which are incorporated herein by reference.
